WHY TAKE THE COMMUTER CHALLENGE?

Healthier You. Active transportation choices like bicycling, walking or riding the bus or train get you closer to the 30 minutes of physical activity recommended for heart health, plus it’s a great stress reducer.

Healthier Finances. It costs roughly $8,900 per year to own and operate an average car.* Save money on fuel and maintenance costs when you drive less often.

Healthier Environment. Changing how you get around – even just a few days a week – is an easy, inexpensive way to improve air quality and reduce your carbon footprint.
